UFC Fight Night 43 Medical Suspensions: Soa Palelei Gets Six Months

Spread the word!

UFC Fight Night 43 went down this past Saturday, and played the first part of the promotion’s double-header weekend. Headlined by Nate Marquardt vs. James Te Huna at middleweight, the card went down in Auckland, New Zealand, and actually provided a pretty solid night of fights. The main event showed ‘The Great’ in his best performance of recent times, sending Te Huna on to his third straighjt loss in the opening round.

The UFC released the official list of medical suspensions for the event, and it was heavyweight competitor Soa Palelei who bore the worst potential lay off. Apparently aggravating his old rib injury, ‘The Hulk’ is looking at a potential sit of six months. Check out the full list of medical suspensions for UFC Fight Night 43, and stay tuned to LowKick!
